A 10th-grade student from Wellington, Fla., died after reportedly drinking alcohol and energy drinks at a party, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

Ashley Ramnauth, 16, went to a party with friends and was dropped off at home afterwards; later, a friend found her unconscious. Her parents and the friend administered CPR and called 911, but Ramnauth was pronounced dead at a local hospital less than two hours later.

Ashley “apparently made a bad decision to consume energy drinks and alcohol in combination,” according to a statement from her family, who added that the student “did not have a lot of experience with alcohol and did not have a known problem with alcohol.”

“She was a straight-A student and very determined,” said Jesse Dallsingh, 16, of Lake Worth, Fla., a friend of Ramnauth’s. “She wasn’t the kind to drink.”

A toxicology report is being conducted to determine what substances were in Ramnauth’s body at the time of her death.
